“the friendly B&b”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

i was in this Galway for 2 days and 1 night and i was in this B&b in a small room but with many services: bathroom with shower, phon, bed and light above the bed, a big window, tv, heated room and wifi for free.
A big room for breakfast with everything: cereal, milk, yogurt, cheese, ham, eggs, toast, milk, tea, coffee and etc.
B&b very clean and owners very friendly and helpful.
This B&b have a nice location, 10 minutes walk from Galway city center.

I'm from America and was in Galway for holiday. This b&b lived up to the high expectations I had from movies. The couple running it were very hospitable and knew where everything was in town or could answer any question that you could through at them. The room was all one would need for vacation and was very clean! The b&b itself was only a short, enjoyable 10 minute walk to the city center, and an extra five minutes to the bus station. My only complaint is that I didn't stay longer!

Room Tip: Give this lovely place a call, it is worth the inability to book online! I knew it was going to be a...

Recently stayed at this b&b and were so pleased with the hospitality and the high standard of the accomodation. We were staying down as we were visiting a family member in the hospital and the welcome we received from Patricia and Jimmy was real warmth and helped us feel at home and put us all at ease.
Would very much like to stay at this b&b for a nice break and would highly reccomend this as a great place to stay.

This is irish hospitality at its best. I travelled down to Galway for a weekend with my husband .arrived to the B&B and was greeted with such warmth and we felt at home straight away.the room was very comfortable and was en suite. Patricia and jimmy couldn't have done enough for us , telling us all about the history of Galway and recommending tours to go on, In the morning Patricia made us a lovely scrambled eggs amongst a variety of healthily choices. I would definitely stay at this B&B again and highly recommend it.

From the moment we booked in we were made to feel very welcome. Our en suite rooms were spotlessly clean and catered for our every need. Hosts Patricia and Jimmy were extremely friendly, particularly when serving an ample continental breakfast and patiently catering for the diverse requests of our children. A great location within walking distance of all the local amenities and we look forward to returning again later in the year.
